ACCA signs deal with British Council
The ACCA has unveiled the new partner to provide its global exam centre network for the introduction of the ACCA’s CBE and paper-based exams – the British Council. The agreement means the British Council will provide a secure network in the UK and in over 100 countries where the Council operates.
This new initiative builds on the long-standing relationship between ACCA and the British Council, which is currently the association’s main exam centre provider for paper-based exams, providing over half of the venues in the ACCA’s international network.
ACCA CEO Helen Brand said: “This new agreement sees the British Council provide ACCA’s future exam centre network in the UK and overseas, exclusively for ACCA students. It supports the roll-out of ACCA’s new computer-based exams for ACCA’s Fundamentals Skills Level (F5-F9) exams from September 2016 onwards.”
She said CBEs were an exciting development for ACCA, incorporating spreadsheets and word processing to better reflect the tasks PQs have to do well in the workplace.
